Why do wooden floors blister?

Even natural wood floors or laminate floors will likely experience blistering due to many different reasons.

  • Normally, the standard humidity of natural wood boards and engineered wood floors is from 12 - 15%. However, in areas with hot and humid weather or in the rainy season, air humidity will be very high. Due to the difference in temperature and humidity, the floor will blister.
  • Wooden floors will also swell if the contractor installs the floor too close or close to the base of the wall. In case of higher temperature changes, the floor does not have room to expand, causing the floor to swell.

How to properly handle swollen wooden floors?

So when wooden floors swell, we need to have the most appropriate treatment measures to optimize costs and time.

Due to humid environment

If during use, you feel the floor is blistering but do not spill or leak water, the cause is probably due to the environment being too humid. What we need to do is remove the skirting board, then trim the wooden bar. Next, join the wooden slats together, making sure to leave enough space for the floor to expand. You can absolutely call a construction worker to ensure the accuracy of the project.

Due to the floor being water-logged and flooded

If the floor is only slightly water-logged, you can quickly turn on the fan, turn on the air conditioner, or better yet, turn on dehumidifying mode. The floor will improve significantly within a few days.

But if the floor is flooded and becomes severely swollen, we must remove all the planks and air them to dry naturally. The floor needs to be completely dry, then install the wooden slats and use as usual.
